Bio
Began a grassroots movement at our community college back in 2007 and with the help of others within the college along with regional partners, we've created an organization that has helped bring more attention to environmental issues in the Charlotte, NC region. The Center for Sustainability won 6 state and local awards during my last 4 years there. Sadly, in June of 2011, the college announced it would not be renewing my contract and my position ended, June 30th 2011.

Now working for Clean Air Carolina, in Charlotte, NC.

Sorry you could not make the conference. I will send you the conference report so you can stay in the loop
We are especially excited about promoting some new initiatives including Natural Leaders and the Natural Leaders Network. Let me know if you get anything going in your area along these lines and we can help promote it. We are also looking to get some Family Nature Clubs established.
